GNS Setup v1.08.0010 won't register/activate

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I uninstalled MS-FSX. I cleaned every trace of FSX. I than installed FSX-SE. Today I wanted to install v.1.08.0010 of the GNS. However I got an error saying:
 

 

The Windows registry points to FSX Steam and Microsoft FSX in the same folder. This installation cannot continue until this is corrected.

 

 

How do I correct this issue?

 

Ultimately I want the GNS unit's to function in FSX-SE and P3Dv3.1.

 

Thanks for any advice.

Your registry has entries for both FSX from Microsoft as well as FSX from the 'other' company... they point to the same location for installations. The registry entries for FSX need to be removed for the installation to continue.

Okay what I did was to delete the registry key here:

 

64 Bit - Main

Platform: FSX, FSX XPack, FSX Gold (Verified)

RootKey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: \Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0
SubKey: SetupPath

 

(from: http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/registry-keys-fsx-fsx-se-p3dv1-p3dv2.432633/)

 

 

I verified with OrbX registry tool that only FSX-SE and P3Dv3 are installed according to the registry. Rebooted my PC and after reboot installed the v1.08.0010 installer

 

I got another error message;

Great online support from Ed and support colleagues.

Compliments, they are real gentlemen. Highly recommended. 

 

Problem solved. A new installer will be available shortly (If I understand well)

Rob,

 

Thank you for the kind words, as well as for putting up with us at your bed time.

 

We will be releasing an updated installer for both our G1000 and our 430/530 products this afternoon (eastern US time zone) to address what we discovered thanks to Rob's patience.
